It's one of the 11.x versions.
As written in the FAQ, WatCom will be available "in a few months"

I thought WatCom was the compiler with this little message I saw when launching
Duke3D, Descent, DooM, Dark Forces, Command & Conquer, .......saying "DOS/4GW
Professional Protected Runtime"
Now I see them saying WatCom only supports 16 bit Windows and DOS applications ?
Protected Mode is clearly 32 bit only and I've seen Screenshots of a Win95 WatCom
IDE, so what are we going to get there ?
